Preordered this, can't wait! Unfortunately, many people seem to be saying that it doesn't measure up to Portraits but we'll see.

Very Parkway Drive-esque sound but I love their clean vocalist, especially when he comes in at the beginning of "An Honourable Reign".

This record makes a lot of metalcore bands look like complete shit. One hell of an effort by these guys.

CD is epic.

Vacant Throne is my jam. Hope these guys finally get the recognition they deserve.

ive been seeing so much hype over this record and to be honest i dont get it. the music is good, but phenomenal? the transitions from sing to scream are so forced everything we've heard here is nothing new. the singer is amazing though, i love his voice on this record and their past one. but all this praise feels so band wagony

Ok, so I'm 8 tracks in and so far I have heard nothing that sets this apart from any other "middle of the road" Metalcore release from the last, I don't know, 6 maybe 7 years??? It all sounds like re-hashings of ideas I've heard countless times before. Please feel free to berate me all you want and by all means prove me wrong but this is a prime example of an album that is killing this genre. I keep listening to bands like this in the hope that someone, somewhere will come out with an album that gave me the same rush as "Alive or Just Breathing" or even "The Powerless Rise" because this is the genre that opened me up to not just metal but pretty much everything else I listen too. I would be genuinely thrilled if someone could find me 5 bands from the last 3 years that could give me that feeling again.

It's not reinventing the wheel but the sheer power alone is what sets this aside from other bands. Some of the tracks are just absolutely crushing.

Honestly, and I'm not saying this simply to be negative or to disagree for the sake of disagreeing but, I just don't get that from this band or many others for that matter. Maybe it's because, to my ears, it doesn't seem raw enough or because after years of listening to Metal/Metalcore etc my sense of what is "heavy" is dumbed (I can quite happily fall asleep to Norma Jean's "O God the Aftermath"........a little weird I know) but I don't feel this album smacking me in the face and telling me to wake the fuck up, ya know???? It all seems very bland and one dimensional. It's like they've sat in the rehearsal room and said "Here are these four chords. We're going to play them in different orders and try and make an album from them........Oh and by the way, here's a beat-down or several." You're right when you say it's not re-inventing the wheel, and in the least patronising way possible, I'm glad you can see that because I know many who wouldn't, but why not have a go at re-inventing??? Why not at least try and come up with something a little different??? Take your influences and add something of yourself to it?????? Why, when you call yourself creative, write something that is patently not your own?????? Can you see where I'm coming from or am I just being mental??
